Savages [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
When it came to original compositions, director Oliver Stone tapped his South of the Border collaborator Adam Peters to score Savages, his adaptation of Don Winslow's 2010 best-selling crime novel. Best known for his orchestrations and cello playing on Echo & the Bunnymen's seminal 1984 album Ocean Rain and elsewhere in film with Crazy, Stupid, Love., Rango, and I Love You, Phillip Morris, Peters combines electric cello and analog synths with dusty guitars and motorik beats to lend the film a cool, modern-meets-classic sonic backdrop.
